Business Beats Cancer North East is an exciting new initiative bringing the North East business community together to beat cancer.

As Cancer Research UK ambassadors in the region, Business Beats Cancer board members and supporters raise funds and awareness for Cancer Research UK’s ground-breaking science on your doorstep.

All funds raised will be restricted to lifesaving cancer research right here in the North East.

Newcastle is home to the Cancer Research UK Newcastle Centre, delivering world-leading research that accelerates the transition of lab-based discovery to the clinic, for the benefit of people affected by cancer in the North East and beyond.

More About CRUK

1 in 2 of us will be diagnosed with cancer in our lifetime.

As the only charity dedicated to fighting all 200 types of cancer, Cancer Research UK’s vision is to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured.

COVID19 has presented one of the biggest challenges in in the charity’s history, being forced to make £89 million of cuts to vital research of in 2020.

As a result, 0 new clinical trials were funded last year and many projects have been paused or slowed down.

  • Bowel, breast and cervical screening programmes were all put on hold at the beginning of the first lockdown meaning approximately 3 million appointments were missed.
  • The number of people being urgently referred with suspected cancer symptoms is significantly down. Between April and August 2020, CRUK estimated around 350,000 fewer people were referred than normal in the UK.
  • Since April 2020, there has been a 37% drop in the number of patients beginning treatment in England compared with the same period last year.


The pandemic may have slowed things down, but the fight against cancer never stops!
